Box Of Eggs..

Sometimes creative things sneak up on you. That was the case when I came across this picture in an Des Moine museum a few ago.  I don’t know who put this box of eggs together but they were genius.

Flowers In The Middle Of Winter…

Here we are in mid-January in the Midwest so there isn’t much growing. But that doesn’t prevent me from enjoying the flowers I found in the Des Moines Botanical Gardens a few years back.  I haven’t had to deal with much snow so far but I still got the winter blahs…. so I need plenty of flowers. 🙂

Box Of Eggs..

5star-banner  I love creative things. Who would have thought to put hundreds of different eggs into a box? Someone thinking outside the box, pun intended, that is for sure. I know this picture came from my trip to Des Moines Iowa but I can’t remember which museum it was in there.

Des Moines Creativity

I love the colorful circles outside the planetarium in Des Moines. They are very creative. But I am most attracted to architectural features like the inside of the dome. There is just something about architectural symmetry that draws me in.

Corn….

Des Moines State Capital  Pic of Corn

Iowa is pretty much known as corn to many of us so I guess I shouldn’t have been surprised to see this very large picture of corn in the State House in Des Moines.  I am not making fun of Iowa as my home state of Indiana is known for much the same thing.  In fact Iowa is one of my favorite states and Mount Vernon Iowa is the most picturesque town I have ever visited.

Symmetry Attack…

Des Moines State Museum - SymmetryI am having another symmetry attack and need to get it out of my system. This picture of symmetry was taken at the Des Moines Iowa State Museum a few years ago. It is a very interesting place to visit.

Be a Giver, Not a Taker….

I found this plaque in the State Capital in Des Moines Iowa. It says a lot about what the heart of America really means. It is a quote form St. Francis os Assisi in memory John F. Kennedy.

Celebrating Native Americans….

Des Moines IA – Native Americans

It has not been that many years ago that native Americans were treated and thought to be less than human. It is nice to see them getting more respect and recognized as the first citizens of America. Compared to them everyone else are immigrants.  The statue above is from the grounds of the Des Moines Iowa statehouse. They have several very nice museums in the city.
